How to watch Adelaide Crows vs Essendon Bombers AFL live and free
It's round 8 and Adelaide are still chasing their first win of the season when they face Essendon. This is how you can tune in.
It's become clear how much of a rebuilding year 2020 is going to be for the Adelaide Crows. They were competitive against St Kilda last weekend, but still lost to fall for 0-7 for the season as rookie coach Matthew Nicks' tough initiation continues.
They face a Bombers outfit that had been flying higher prior to last week's loss to the Western Bulldogs. Essendon still have a game in hand, but that defeat knocked them out of the top eight. They will be eyeing off a big win over the struggling Crows.
When is Crows vs Bombers?
Adelaide Oval is the location for this match, which gets underway at 1:05pm AEST on Saturday 25 July.

Who will win Adelaide vs Essendon?
It would take a brave punter to pick the Crows, this week or just about any week in 2020. Their list needs a total revamp while Nicks implements his game plan. There is still a little uncertainty around the Bombers, who have picked up four narrow wins and defeats to Carlton and the Bulldogs. But we're confident they will have too much firepower for the Crows.
